Taking such a cinematic and immersive approach to a television series has never been done to this degree, with Marvel’s Inhumans director Roel Reinè using IMAX® cameras to take full advantage of the scale and scope of the IMAX canvas. In IMAX theatres, Marvel’s Inhumans will be presented in its entirety in an expanded IMAX 1.9:1 aspect ratio – offering moviegoers 26% more of the image than normal – for a truly immersive experience.

The IMAX release of Marvel’s Inhumans has been designed and customized to take full advantage of The IMAX Experience, with crystal-clear images, powerful digital audio and customized theatre geometry.

About Marvel’s Inhumans:

Marvel’s Inhumans is ABC’s third Marvel television series, following Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Marvel’s Agent Carter.  The plot follows the story of the Inhuman Royal Family’s escape to Hawaii after a military coup, where they are greeted with surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them. Now they must find a way to reunite with each other and return to their home before their way of life is destroyed forever.

The series stars:

Anson Mount as Black Bolt– The enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city

Serinda Swan as Medusa – Queen of the Inhumans and wife of Black Bolt — his most trusted advisor, a fiercely resilient warrior who has the ability to move and control her hair the way most people use their hands and fingers.

Iwan Rheon as Maximus –the clever and charming Inhuman that is fiercely devoted to the people of Attilan, especially his brother, the King – although he harbors an intense desire to wear the crown himself.

Ken Leung as Karnak – Cousin and closest advisor to Black Bolt. His gift is an ability to see the fault in all things – people, plans, structures, everything. He’s Black Bolt’s most ardent supporter and strategist and is often seen as the royal family’s planner and philosopher.

Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon – Cousin of Black Bolt, member of the Royal family, and leader of Attilan’s military. With super strong legs, complete with hooves, he can generate destructive seismic waves with a single stomp makes him a force to be reckoned with among Inhumans. The yin to his cousin Karnak’s yang, Gorgon would rather fight than talk to solve his problems.

Isabelle Cornish as Crystal – Medusa’s sister, Crystal, is the youngest member of the Royal family and has the ability to control the four elements of fire, earth, water and air. Impetuous and independent, she is also deeply devoted to her family.

Mike Moh as Triton – Black Bolt’s cousin, he’s calm under pressure and supremely athletic. His gift is his fish-like ability to live underwater.

Sonya Balmores as Auran – Head of the Royal Guards on Attilan, a capable and no-nonsense woman. She is fiercely loyal to the King of Attilan.

Ellen Woglom as Louise – A smart, intense, and focused woman. Her job at a private aerospace company is her life, second only to her passion for all things space and lunar.

Lockjaw as himself – Crystal’s 2,000 lb canine (yes, a dog!) companion with the ability to teleport.

Vodacom: Social Media Reaction & Uproar

As it already is, South African network providers, particularly Vodacom themselves, charge exorbitant fees for data bundles and tariff plans; so, the mysterious depletion and disappearance of already expensive data was not going to be taken lightly by Vodacom customers and they were not going to turn the other cheek as they took to social media to vent out frustrations and expletives.

Users of competing network providers such as MTN, Cell C and Telkom understandably saw the lighter side as they somehow see fit to describe the situation as “fair”, because they know the experience of unceremoniously losing data and airtime for no particular reason all too well. Some users even took the liberty of purchasing more data just to take to social media to complain about data, at the risk of losing the data once again. Here are screenshots of the more noteworthy complaints about Vodacom on social media.

Although following the incident Vodacom has reimbursed and reinstated all customer data as well as 500mb, for data that had been depleted or for lack of a better word, “disappeared”, the incident created a maligned and unnecessary feeling of helplessness and despair amongst Vodacom users. Vodacom has since afforded their sincerest apologies to customers and users, Vodacom spokesperson Byron Kennedy insisted, speaking on EWN and ENCA emphasising that data was not “stolen” or “taken” from customers, elaborating that it was all an unfortunate internal incident on their part, as there was a configuration to tariff plans which led to the error.

Atomic Blonde Pre-screening Hosted by Ster Kinekor

The exclusive media event gave Ster Kinekor an opportune platform to showcase their meticulous hosting capabilities to the auspicious guests.  The prestige of experiencing Atomic Blonde at Ster Kinekor’s Cine Prestige cinema, may feel comparable to an IMAX theatre, to anyone who wouldn’t know better. The atmosphere and eloquent setting of Ster Kinekor’s Cine Prestige cinema is definitely an involvement that is appealing to any and all individuals, particularly those that classify themselves as ‘film fanatics’ but lack desire to attend cinematic theatres due to the now mundane and obsolete setting of cinemas. Cine Prestige opposes and quashes all doubts as it’s the flagship of modern-day cinema. The homely and couch-like setting, married with sparkling bubbly and delectable finger foods on offer, not forgetting the exquisite reverberating sound system domed inside the Cine Prestige cinema is something to behold.

As for the movie itself, Atomic blonde has the capacity to be mentioned in the same breath as the 007 Series. Starring Charlize Theron, as Lorraine Broughton, the championing protagonist in the face of daunting adversity, as a concoction of the intense Cold War, between 1980’s east and west Berlin, identifying friend from foe and the evergrandquest for love. Atomic Blonde has sensationally been anointed as “The best movie of 2017” by some critics

Woman of The Month with Luyanda Madonia

0
Woman of The Month, Luyanda Madonia, Revolt Clothing, Fashion, South Africa, Art, Business, Johannesburg, Lifestyle, Online Shopping

It’s Women’s Month and we put our focus on Pennslyvania born fashion entrepreneur Luyanda Madonia. A dance graduate from the National School of Arts (Johannesburg), Luyanda has always had an inclination towards the entertainment industry from a tender age. Her fashion sense has influences that cross international borders and this reflects in her clothing line as an incorporation of the vibrant Los Angeles culture and the African cosmopolitan flavour. She shares her journey with us on breaking into the fashion industry as a young South African woman.

  1. Describe Luyanda Madonia and what has contributed to who you are today.

Luyanda is a black, African woman, trying to take over the world of fashion! Everything that happens in my life at every day contributes to who I am this very second.

 

  1. How did you get into the fashion industry?

I went to the Art Institute of California – Hollywood and obtained a degree in Fashion Marketing. My profession is Social Media Marketing Specialist for boutique brands, so I started there. Now I have my hands in many different pots in fashion.

 

  1. When did you start your clothing label and what makes it unique?

I started my label August 2015 in my little apartment in Los Angeles, but it solely operated in South Africa

 

  1. How would you describe your clothing brand and what type of people tend to buy your products?

It is unique because it brings the global fashion to the hungry fashionistas of South Africa. It is edgy and made for the women who uses fashion to express their daily mood. Plus, it’s online which is pretty dope.

 

  1. What are some of the challenges you’ve faced in establishing your brand in the fashion industry?

Particularly in South Africa data charges is a HUGE issue for my brand since it is based online. Not everyone can surf the net for items all night because data is just way to expensive, so it slows down the learning curve of buying online.

 

  1. Share tips to aspiring young entrepreneurs on getting their product into the market.

JUST DO IT! I think the issue is people being scared and wondering about money, or security etc. JUST DO IT!

 

  1. What do you plan to do in order to expand your brand?

I plan to have a Pop Up tour around major metropolitan cities in South Africa. Create an app for easier shopping online. Expand to quirky home goods and accessories.

 

  1. What fuels your passion and motivation for life and business?

Well I have to eat and pay bills so I better get up every morning and work. I don’t have the luxury of security and a monthly paying job with benefits sooo… But when I get texts or social media mentions from happy customers beaming in confidence wearing my clothes is pretty motivational.

Woman of The Month, Luyanda Madonia, Revolt Clothing, Fashion, South Africa, Art, Business, Johannesburg, Lifestyle, Online Shopping

  1. Nickname

I have many but Lulu or Lu is common

 

  1. Pet peeve

Fake people, and people pleasers

 

  1. Favourite superhero

My mother

 

  1. One regret

Not practising the art of saving money at an early age.

 

  1. Secret desire

To be a performing artist, mainly singing; could be a pop star, rock star or broadway. PS I cannot sing.

If you have a passion for something, these are words to live by, “Just Do It”, throw caution to the wind, who knows you could be the next best thing!

Wanna feed the fashion rebel in you? Head on to the Revolt Clothing online store and quench your hunger for edgy and stylish apparel.

Be Careful What You Wish For – Anatii & A.K.A

AKA, Anatii, Hip Hop, Rap, South Africa, Supa Mega, Be Careful What You Wish For, bcwywf

January 2017 saw the release of the 1st single of the then unknown collab album, 10 Fingers. Although the fact that the song was credited to the duo as A.K.A & Anatii, not one artist featuring the other raised debate and suspicion that the duo could potentially release a sensational collab album, an unprecedented feat in South African hip hop. By the time the second single, Don’t Forget To Pray, was released, the public was fully aware that a collab album was on its way. We already knew that the rappers work and suit each other well from 2015’s The Saga, where Anatii features A.K.A and although the song was on Anatii’s Artefacts album, it’s also included on Be Careful What You Wish For, credited as Anatii feat. A.K.A.AKA, Anatii, Hip Hop, Rap, South Africa, Supa Mega, Be Careful What You Wish For, bcwywf

Anatii’s production reverberates throughout BCWYWF in its entirety (something which served him well on his Artefacts album). The 24-year-old also provides stellar vocals as well as impressive raps, which is a pleasant facet to hear on Don’t Forget To Pray as he raps in his isiXhosa home language. Kiernan Forbes aka A.K.A (😊) provides and blesses us with his “SupaMega-ness”, which never seems to disappoint. Anything other than meticulous is not on the 29-year old’s to do list as anything he touches seems to be pure gold. A.K.A has continuously insisted that his love for hip hop doesn’t cloud his overall adoration for music as he prefers his raps to cross-pollinate with other genres, but primarily rooted by hip hop. This is evident throughout Be Careful What You For as the variation of his musicality and demonstrated. A solid collab album by two juggernauts of South African hip hop.

The duo is currently on a Be Careful What You Wish Tour around the country.

Tracklist:

  1. Bryanston Drive
  2. 10 Fingers
  3. 1000
  4. How You Like Me Now!/?
  5. Camps Bay 3AKA, Anatii, Hip Hop, Rap, South Africa, Supa Mega, Be Careful What You Wish For, bcwywf

The music movement is taking place all over Africa just like the show – we are one,” adding, “It’s high time for Africa to take over the world, because the whole world is watching.”
